Love Lost .....


He saw her gazing at the blue dress displayed on the mannequin. Even after 2 long years, he had recognized her at one glance. She had grown thin, but definitely looked more beautiful then ever. She still held that attractive look which made people to just stare at her. And that was what he was doing at the moment. Admiring her from a very safe distance. Something seemed to have disturbed her, and she suddenly turned his way. She looked all surprised now to see him there.

He walked towards her, fearing the possibility of her ignoring him and walking away. But then she smiled at him and his tension seemed to fade away. They stood there facing each other silently. There were so many things he wanted to tell her, so many questions he wanted to ask. No words came out of him.

He: Hi, such a long time.

She: Yes, its really a surprise to see you. You look the same.

He: Yeah. So hows life? Hey how about a cup of coffee? Are you busy?

She: No, cup of coffee will be great.

They now sat at the coffee shop talking about everything other then anything related to their personal life. He was actually scared to ask her about her present. He was not sure to how me may react, if she said that now she had someone in her life. They had a distance of 2 years between them. There seemed to be a lot many changes in her now. She had changed the way she wore her hair. But her smile was the same. He still knew how to make her laugh. For anyone else looking at them now, they may have seemed like a perfect couple enjoying a cup of coffee. But only they knew about the underlying tension in between them.

An hour had passed by quickly and she realized that she had to leave now.

She: Its already late. I have to leave. Thanks for the coffee.

He: Oh am i paying for it? I thought you were, so i ordered the most expensive one!

She laughed, stood up and ruffled his head. And he just wanted to freeze that moment.

He walked her to the lift and the tension was back now. He was not sure whether he should ask for her number and she seemed quite jittery too.
The lift opened and she walked inside. He just stood out and smiled at her.

She: i dont know if i will see you again anytime.

He nodded silently. The life door started to close.

She: You know ... I still ...

The door had closed completely by now.

He stood there staring at the closed door.
Then very silently he murmured "yeah i love you too!"

Too often words unsaid change our life for good and we are left with nothing but regrets and memories that fade.
